AC Milan striker Olivier Giroud has been called up for France’s next two games against Austria and Denmark.
The 2018 France World Cup winner made his last appearance with Les Blues in March 2022, missing the following four Nations League games in June.

France national team coach Didier Deschamps also called on Giroud’s teammates, Theo Hernandez and Adrien Rabiot, although the latter has missed the last two games with the Old Lady due to an injury.
